seal_300

The State of New York has awarded the Town of Southampton a $1 million dollar grant for drinking water infrastructure improvements for the residences and businesses in the East Quogue community which currently are sourcing their water from private wells.  

A private well testing program and protocol initiated by the Suffolk County Health Department, as part of Governor Cuomo’s Clean Water Initiative, had identified properties in East Quogue that are potentially affected by emerging contaminants PFOS/PFOA and that do not have access to public water.  

Through the use of these grant funds, the Suffolk County Water Authority (SCWA) will extend existing water mains to provide access to a public water supply to residents and businesses in the impacted areas of East Quogue.  There are approximately 111 residences and businesses in the East Quogue area which currently rely on well water for their drinking water supply.  

“I am very pleased by this award, said Town Councilman John Bouvier.  “This will offset some of the costs currently being borne by our CPF Water Quality funding and free up spending for other projects.”

The Town applied for this grant funding provided through the NYS Water Infrastructure Improvement Act (WIIA) in January, 2019.
